How bout we just continue with a little more house showin?
Yes, let's just do a little more......
This little section with the built-ins represents more space than I've ever had to display or set things out. Can't help feelin a lil smug as the man of the house has to concede to the fact that "No, I don't have too much stuff. We've just always had too little space!" ;)
I like to think of those pugs as part of a broken family. Dad left mom and of course, the boy wanted be with his daddy so he took sides and headed out to Nashville. Mom and sis and are doin alright. Better days ahead....
Absolute favorite vintage find that TRUMPS all other finds is an old puppet.
Handmade, factory made, fallen apart or mint condition. I will buy any old puppet that I have the money and the means to. Puppetry is one of my callings in life. Glad it's somethin fun :)
I been callin this old lady, Helen. I would have loved to have been able to know and spend time with the person who made these. The estate sale runners had no background info (?) but I could tell it was an amazing couple. Anyone who crafts puppets is amazing in my book :)
Granny gave me this tramp. I love how "tramp" used to mean vagabond or hobo but totally means loose lady, nowadays. Wait, do folks still say "loose" anymore?
There's still perfume in this old Avon bottle. Good lord, it stinks! I love that bottle forever, though.
The whale is a cigar tray that boasts "Whale of a Guy" on the front. And the owl was sittin on Herb Henekee's porch for 25 years before he sold it to me for beans. Talked to Herb last week, we'll definitely be keepin in touch. Well, his last words were "You keep in touch, Laura" so that's just what I'll do :)
